Sullivan roasted maple, Crowe spacing. The ebony top is wider and flatter than I expected. Should this be more of a rounded? or knife edge? Or is it good to go. Thanks

I have it on the banjo now. Seems fine the way it is. It sure did change the tone of the banjo. I think I'm going to like this bridge.

Wow! With all the improvements I've made to the parts, this has become a sweet banjo (Iida 230, aluminum pot, made in Japan). New 5 Star head, Presto type tailpiece, Sullivan roasted maple bridge, bone nut and Gotoh geared 5th peg. It really rings now and the notes are more clear. I am really enjoying it now.

A bridge can make all the difference in clarity and tone.

Yes, so I'm finding out. I've learned a lot of new things here.

Played guitar for 45+ years, but only picked up a banjo a few times, until I found this in a pawn shop. So I'm learning the banjo at 60.
